Yes, the times are there, but I think after the halfway point of the sesaon they're all 1:00PM. The team hasn't updated the schedule to account for flex scheduling ( better games go to 4:00, etc.), but I may try to do that since I'm hosting my own copy of their CSV file now.

This syncs a google calander with iCal, but does not sync any information from iCal into Google calender. This Tutorial should be re-named. Does anyone know of a good tutorial that shows how to sink iCal with Google?
